Blitzen Trapper will be taking over the First Avenue main room on Sunday, October 4th and you will definitely want to be there. I have never been able to see these guys but am definitely excited! These guys are a five piece country/folk band from Portland, Oregon. With eight studio albums under their belt, these guys are sure to bring the house down with their quirky sound. I'm not typically a country fan but there's something about these guys that keeps you wanting more.
Blitzen Trapper's latest All Across This Land will land on October 2 via Vagrant Records.
Opening up will be The Domestics, a five piece indie folk-rock group from Portland, Oregon. They are new to the scene but have already been turning heads. They will be out supporting their self-titled debut album coming out via Tender Loving Empire records. These guys were named an "artist to watch" by Spin for a reason!

You might remember how we caught Sun Club (Shane McCord, Adam Shane, Mikey Powers, Devin McCord, Kory Johnson) with Alvvays at the Turf Club in December 2014 and was totally blown away. As Emily described it, "Sun Club didn’t just open the show, they took a mallet and bashed their way in. Their set was weird, wild and wonderful - as if they were all hooked up to electrodes that caused violent convulsions in the form of sexy dancing."
Baltimore band recently signed with ATO Records and is currently out on tour in support of their debut LP The Dongo Durango (out October 30th).
Headliner is Philadelphia's The Districts, currently touring in support of their 2015 album A Flourish and a Spoil (Fat Possums Records).
